Bushwick is pushing a decade as Brooklyn’s alternative, underground neighborhood. Vibrant graffiti art murals cover façades of converted factories and brick buildings, and rusty wire fences open to modernistic cafés and restaurants. At night, top-name DJs spin in basements for locals and visitors in the know, and people chill out at laid-back bars with (pricey) cocktails in hand. In spite of gentrification, Bushwick remains home to the borough’s largest Hispanic immigrant community, whose influence shows in outdoor markets and street music. Wondering where to start? Take the L out to the Jefferson stop, and just start walking around.
